In this video from Building Wisconsin TV, we’ll see how whiskey is made at Dancing Goat Distillery and how welders from Steamfitters Local 601 are an integral part of the process. Host Stuart Keith starts at the Steamfitters 601 Training Center in Milwaukee with Joel Zielke. Then it’s on to Dancing Goat in Cambridge WI to meet with General Mgr. Sean Dotson and Head Distiller & Blender Nick Maas. Watch how welding done by Local 601 contractor DeGarmo Plumbing & Piping effects the quality of the whiskey and why having highly trained welders is part of Dancing Goat’s formula for success. Finally, welding instructor Erik Ogren talks about the Accelerated Welding Program for experienced welders to join Local 601.
